PHARMACY FIRST

For minor ailments and many other things, local PHARMACIES can prescribe or provide you with the medicines you might need.

Pharmacists can prescribe medication for simple UTIs (urinary tract infections) in women, sore throats, smoking cessation, the morning after pill and a range of other conditions, where appropriate. You may have to phone few pharmacies to check availability, but this is often quicker and easier than seeing a GP for the same problem.

You will be advised by the practice to go to speak to your local pharmacist for the following conditions:

  • Acne (initial steps in treating acne)

  • Athlete's Foot

  • Diarrhoea

  • Ear Wax (syringing is not available in the practice)

  • Groin area infections (usually fungal)

  • Haemorrhoids

  • Head lice

  • Mouth ulcers (you should also see a dentist to exclude dental issues)

  • Oral thrush

  • Scabies

  • Threadworms

  • Vaginal thrush

  • Verrucae (podiatry will not accept referrals for this)
